In addition, when you purchase a turbo with ECP you will receive a “free fitting kit” to help maximize efficacy. Donna West, director of communications at ECP commented: “ECP have recognised an opportunity and have invested heavily in stock across their branch network. Over the next few months over 80 branches will have a comprehensive exhaust and fittings range available ‘off the shelf’ and an overnight availability on more obscure parts. This applies to exhausts, cats and turbos. On average there are 10-20 exhausts, cat and turbos new to range applications added each month, every month. “Cats, DPF’S and turbos are on the up, as emissions standards are tougher than ever. By the year 2012- 98% of diesel cars will have turbos fitted and 30% of petrol cars, compare this to five years ago, where only 70% of diesel and 5% of petrol cars. As you can see this is a huge increase. Here at ECP we are keeping up with these demands and we continue to stock the latest and widest range of cats, DPF’s and turbos available in the UK. “We welcome any feedback you can give on trends in sales or popular issues that keep raising within the exhaust, cat and turbo market, please send you feedback via email to the following address;” For media enquiries relating to this press release please contact Tracey Treanor at Chicane on 07789 078 710 or e-mail
